I think that we’ve finally gotten into the swing of taking pictures around here (except for a couple of days), which means that once again, this weekly post will be ridiculous.
Sunday, April 2nd
Speaking of ridiculous, I FINALLY got pictures of the completed Temperature Monster. Sheesh.
Meanwhile, we’ve got an Eastern Phoebe nesting on the security light in our carport!
Plus, this. It was a banner day at The Bug Homestead.
Monday, April 3rd
Rainy Monday, unsuccessful trip to get the Bugly’s NC license plate, but these guys make us laugh every time we pass them. Goats are hilarious.
After my grandmother died I said that I wanted her china (oldest granddaughter’s prerogative), but I didn’t have anywhere for it to live. I finally got it from my dad’s house, washed it, and decided that my next cousin in line should have it. She probably wishes I had made that decision years ago! Isn’t it pretty though?

I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE!! So, you get this screen shot of my word game. Can you guess what the remaining two words are? Note: You can’t actually make the two words with this configuration – I had to restart the game & pick the letters for the other words in a different way to make it work, which is why I did the screen shot in case I forgot the words I had already found.

I almost didn’t have a picture for this day either, but fortunately someone posted on Facebook about how gnomes make her think of me, and so I had to take a picture of our current gnome.

One of my cousins brought her two girls for a visit – so sweet! The older one is SO SMART – it’s kind of scary. Ha!
I decided to reinstitute my State of the Bug feature that I had going a while back. So, the State of the Bug: Thinking that Christmas jammies in April didn’t seem as big a deal in Ohio. And apparently unable to shut up talking about it long enough to take a picture.

The usual scene the back yard. Also, you’ll be glad to know that at long last, the Bugly is a NC resident.

We went to spend some time with Dr. M’s dad. His azalea bush is gorgeous! Taller than I am! And he has a lovely dogwood in the back yard. I do believe I really am in NC now.
Ohio has license plates in the front and back of cars, but NC only has the back ones. Daisy felt nekkid, so I got her a fashion accessory. Ha!
Yesterday was my sister-in-law’s birthday & she had to celebrate alone with a sick teenager (my brother did send her flowers, so he’s somewhat redeemed – he was out of town). I felt bad, so I brought her some make-up cupcakes. The 9 is because my phone told me she was 9 (I apparently entered her birthday in 2008). See that empty space? That’s where the cupcake was that I ate on the way to her house – a Cadbury Egg Cupcake. O. M. G.
And while I was out gallivanting, Dr. M got to see bunnies in the back yard!
How was your week?
